What will be covered in the workshop?

Long Exposure Photography

It involves using long exposure shutter speeds to sharply capture the stationary elements of images while blurring moving elements. This type of photography might require a few necessary accessories like ND filters while a sturdy tripod is utmost necessary. A remote release shutter cable is very important as it is sometimes required to shoot on bulb mode. 

Cityscapes

An urban representation of a landscape, it is an artistic representation of the physical aspects of the city or urban area. This is also a type of long exposure photography and requires the same accessories mentioned above. Composition plays a very important role in capturing a great city scape apart from deciding the right shutter speed. 

This is a technique to capture creative images in low light or busy streets. While a higher ISO can be used it is necessary to know the optimum ISO to control noise in the photograph. A good composition is always necessary for a good photography but the right camera settings are more important while shooting on the streets especially in low light situations and when things are moving and dynamic. 

Light trails is a very popular subject among many photographers and they can actually be a great foreground for those wanting to get their cameras out of manual mode and to experience shooting in low light and longer exposures. Again accessories like a sturdy tripod a remote release shutter cable are an integral part of shooting light trails. This type of photography also requires a lot of trial and errors while on location. Correct camera settings may help simplify the on field process.
